In addition to above explanation, I would like to mention about my life about struggling to learn english. I believe that, grammar is like a glue of learning english, undoubtfull, without grammar, speaking English is not good. I had attendent lots of English courses in my country. In Turkey education system about a language, Grammar is the most important aspect for a learning language. English Courses pay attention to only Grammar.Unfortunately our language education wasnt not enough for speaking english, Even Teachers used to teach language and grammar with their native language.In last ten years this changed, In english courses teach english Native speaker teachers. After attended English courses, I decided to go to England to improve my english in 2009. I had attended English courses in London, I learned English in native language. I have been to London approximately 2 years.In England, I realised that most of college students who lives in England , and also some native speaker people make plenty of grammar mistakes. I heard of their conversation, they say “ he are.. she are”..etc and more grammar mistakes. They don’t pay attention to the grammar while they are speaking- in real life conversation . They are relax and talk naturally without getting to focused on grammar rules. In addition to this, Some Turkish People or from other countries people who was born in England, they couldn’t write an Essay. Their writing skill is very bad. They try to write as they heard. When I went back to Turkey, I worked as teacher in Private Language schools approximately 2 years. Student ages between 10-14 year old. I also had worked in Import Export Company as a Export Sales Person. At weekends, I teach English to the students part time. In the business life we usually use english by writing. On Outlook always correspend by mail with our customers. In order to good communication with our we need a good grammar. As a result ; Learning language is a long prosses, it requires efforts, patient and it takes very long time. Of course Grammar is not everything but we can not ignore. How should we study grammar in this period? In my opinion, we should keep short, but it should be frequent! 15 minutes doing grammar exercises is enough, rest of time, we should study, listening, speaking and reading. Conversation is a main goal for learning language. Grammar is important tool to achieve this goal. We should use grammar in real conversation. How can we do? All grammar exercises should be repeat many times. A language is learned by frequent repetition.
